To which Joao Cardoso <address@hidden> correctly responded:

This is the key -- I had done a "make clean", which (apparently) did not
the state left by the previous configure run under RH 5, a subtlty I had
previously appreciated.  Acting on Joao's "make distclean" suggestion
in a clean build and functional octave.  Bottom line -- pilot error.

Thanks for all who took the time to respond.
